This study was conducted in 2015 that samples were selected through the systematic random sampling from all wards of sari’s Imam Khomeini hospital. The Instrument of data collection comprised of two-part questionnaire prepared by the researcher. The first part of questionnaire is about the personal and demographic data and the second part of questionnaire is about the investigation of attitude about organ donation. The validity of questionnaire was confirmed by five faculty experts. Data was analyzed by using SPSS16 software. The mean of nurses’ attitude about organ donation and brain death was 93.23±9.27 that 56 (46.7%) people had a good attitude and 64 (53.3%) people had the excellent attitude. There was significant statistical relationship between the age (P=0.01, r=0.302), work experience (r=0.267, P=0.003) and also between education (t=3.53, P=0.001) with the attitude of nurses. Considering the positive correlation between the work experience and education and positive attitude of nurses about organ donation, it is suggested that use the nurses with higher work experience and education in order to convince the family of brain death patients to be satisfy with the organ donation.
